Hidden Figures

I have not seen Hidden Figures yet.

I wonder if they're going to mention that Ms Johnson was hired when Dwight Eisenhower, a known Republican, was president.  Though the barrier to hiring a black woman for such a job was lowered in 1943 by the Roosevelt-32 (as opposed to Roosevelt-26), it's noteworthy that it wasn't put back in place after World War 2.

Now I only hope it's a good movie.

Red Tails sure wasn't.  HBO did a much better job than Lucas with their Tuskegee Airmen.
